A better software for estimating wind fields

Jean-Michel Prima - 24/03/2017

A computer-vision program born at Inria, Typhoon is meant to retrieve vector motion fields from image sequences of turbulent flows such as weather satellite photos. After being used by California State University, Chico in conjunction with lidar imagery to assess low-altitude wind fields, this innovative software is now reaching the industry. At stake: finding the best spots for future wind farms or estimating the atmospheric dispersion of pollutants.

Immerstar, une plateforme d'expérimentation unique pour l'étude des mouvements humains à grande échelle

Nathalie Lacaux - 9/01/2017

Immerstar is a unique experimental platform for studying large-scale human movements. Whether it is sport situations, individual or collective, up to crowd simulation, the platform is coupled with a virtual reality environment. This platform of virtual reality allows us to immerse ourselves in the environment that we seek to study.

Finding Nuggets Mining Data

Jean-Michel Prima - 8/12/2016

Whereas the digital economy is churning out ever more dizzying volumes of information, the smart exploitation of such data bonanza paradoxically laggs way behind. Indeed data mining is faced with a glaring lack of adequate tools. More often than not, what is also referred to as Knowledge Discovery in Data (KDD) remains a predominantly manual process. At Inria research center, in Rennes, Brittany, France, a group of data scientists led by Alexandre Termier is mulling over novel approaches meant not only to automate the exploration workflow but also to improve results visualization and to put the user in the loop.

Inria Previz Tech Transferred to French SolidAnim

Jean-Michel Prima - 8/12/2016

A Paris-based company specializing in motion capture and 3D animation for the film industry, SolidAnim recently acquired an Inria technology that will enable directors to previsualize their work and pick between a variety of visual options before shooting the real movie. As scientist Marc Christie explains, in the wake of this successful transfer, both partners are now contemplating joint R&D work.

Bringing Automated Test Generation to DevOps

Jean-Michel Prima - 1/12/2016

A powerful software development methodology, DevOps has become a very popular tool in the US for it greatly helps web giants to deliver more frequent updates. True enough, Europe hasn't catch up yet. Coordinated by Inria, STAMP is a consortium whose aim is to provide a critical missing piece to this methodology. To wit: an automated test generation tool that would make DevOps less risky and incidentally more palatable to European companies. This projet has just been selected as part of the EU H2020 call for proposals ICT-10-2016 ‘Software Technologies’.

A constraint solver in Java

Jean-Michel Prima - 1/09/2016

A Java library for the modelling and solving of mathematical problems based on constraint programming (CP), Choco has become one of the most effective open source tools in its field. Charles Prud'homme, who is jointly in charge of development and a research engineer with the Tasc team in Nantes, looks back at the reasons behind this success and explains the appeal of such a solver for industry.

Redesigning the Cloud

Jean-Michel Prima - 30/08/2016

In reality, most of the world's Cloud infrastructure is made up of gigantic data centres grouped together in a surprisingly small number of places. Such a concentration creates different risks, in particular with regard to reliability. If just one of these giant sites breaks down, there could be significant consequences. Moreover, the global transport of data between the end-user and these platforms, situated at the opposite side of the world, consumes a lot of resources.  In addition, there are latency issues due to distance. Inria, in association with Orange and Renater*, is studying an alternative model that would enable the computing and storage power to be spread along the whole IP network, in particular in premises already managed by the Internet service providers.
